romney. mitt romney, for his part, has laid low with his family since the loss. but today, his post-campaign remarks are surfacing. he was on a conference call with major donors today. what he said about what went wrong is already getting some attention tonight. nbc's peter alexander just back after covering the campaign, here with us in the studio. >> reporter: brian, good evening, as you know this conference call just wrapped up hours ago, governor romney blamed this defeat on what he described as big gifts that the president had given to some of the democrats most loyal voting block. he called it the old play book rule with specific interest groups. he said with regard to young people, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. he added free contraception was very big with college-aged women. and finally, he said obama-care made a difference, likewise with hispanic voters, health care was a big plus. he is scheduled to meet with top advisers tomorrow night. one thing is sure in terms of his future. he said the donors may play a part in helping him select the next repu
that romney failed i think in part because no one really knew where he stood. while he was lying about his record, lying about obama, republicans and democrats this election agreed on one thing. no one could say for sure what' romney was on on any specific point. if he had been a starter candidate, he might have won. if the republican party had a slicker version, more human version of romney, alessa beta version, they might have gone further and won. that was lucky for the democrats. tavis: you have given me a wonderful segue which is now what the future of the gop is. what kind of person into the future, i have -- do they have to put up given the demographic shifts in this country? >> they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. their first impulse is marco rubio for president because we need latinos and he is a cuban- american. that put him up there. i think they're going to have to realize that if they really want to be effective they're going to have to change some policies. they cannot find biffar managers with it -- with existing policies. there will have to cling

of people talking about, and a lot of republicans, what mitt romney said in part to campaign contributors sometime in the last ten days since the election. are you comfortable with the way he explained his defeat by talking about people like students who take student loan breaks and others, women who get help for contraception? did he seem to be blaming the voters again? >> andrea, i listened to the comments. i don't know what the context fully was. i don't agree with the comments. i think the campaign is over and what voters are are look for us to do is to accept their votes and then go forward and we've got some big challenges that need to be resolved, as you know. >> so you're not comfortable with what you heard him say? >> i don't know the full context of them but i don't agree with the comments. and my view is the campaign is over. voters have spoken and they want us to work together to solve our problems. >> thanks very much, senator. appreciate you coming on today. >> thanks, andrea. >>> fighting intensifies in the middle east. reporters on the ground in tel aviv and gaza. >>> late

myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced responsible approach and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate. and the majority of voters agreed with me. by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. so we got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction, we have to do it in a balanced way. >> after wrapping up the news conference, the president met with a group of ceos to discuss the federal deficit. the business leaders say the meeting was positive adding the white house seemed committed to involving them in those upcoming fiscal talks. >>> mitt romney by the way, is offering his take on what went wrong with his presidential candidacy. in a phone call with some of his donors, romney defended his campaign saying the president won because he folk used on giving -- this was his words, gifts to hiss manics, african-americans

on their parent's health care plans until they're 26. if i recall right, governor romney said, hey, that was a part of the affordable care act, a part of obama care that he was going to try to keep. so to go of a the president's vote on the basis that we protected more young people from, you know, catastrophic health care costs, that we wanted to make sure people have access to birth control, and those kind of things, i think is going to strike the american people as just kind of very off kilter, and clearly some of the governor, republican governors and others recognize that it's another romney mistake. >> congressman chris van hollen with us this morning. nice to see you. appreciate you, as always. >>> christine's minding your business this morning. news on the stock market and bad news out of europe. >> yeah, lots going on. first let's talk about the markets, you guys. stock futures are up after a really tough day yesterday. since election day, the dow is down nearly 700 points since the election. this morning we learned that the euro zone has fallen back into recession. that's

, if there was one thing that everybody understood, was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate and the majority of voters agreed with me. more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. so we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction, we've got to do it in a balanced way. the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? or can we all step back and say, here's something we agree on. we don't want middle class taxes to go up. let's go ahead and lock that in. that will be good for the economy. it will be good for consumers. it will be good for businesses. it takes the edge off the fiscal cliff. and let's also then commit ourselves to the broader package of deficit reduction that includes
